21 Adar Aleph 5782
Talking about past enemies reincarnating in leaders of their respective countries today, not so long ago we had Machmoud Achmedinejad pegged as Haman HaRasha since at the time, he was President of Iran and physically resembled descriptions of Haman (and Hitler, y"sh).
While he is no longer the president of Iran, he has never stopped being politically active or stopped trying to regain his former position. I thought it would be worthwhile to look him up and see what he has been up to lately. Imagine my surprise to read the following from three weeks ago (Shabbat) just three days before Rosh Chodesh Adar Aleph.
In a speech to supporters in Tehran Thursday, Ahmadinejad warned of a "danger of invasion and war" after a "dirty deal" between the two world powers. "I have accurate knowledge that Russia and the US have traded Iran and Ukraine,” he said. “The US will allow Russia to invade Ukraine…allowing the US to move onto Iran.”"Who has allowed you to make secret deals behind the scenes over Iran?" he asked the world powers Washington and Moscow. "You shouldn't be under the illusion that all Iranians are simpletons like a number of officials that you have met” – possibly referring to President Ebrahim Raisi (Raeesi), recently in Moscow, or Iranian diplomats in the Vienna nuclear talks....Ahmadinejad, who left office in 2013 and was not cleared to run in the 2017 and 2021 presidential elections, has become a strident critic of foreign policy, with comments laced with allegations of conspiracies.
